Generally a simplified physical exam is required to obtain most types of term life policies. The physical exam can be completed at your home or other convenient location. The exam generally takes only about 15-30 minutes and is conducted by a licensed paramedical or medical doctor. The exam generally involves a blood and urine specimen, blood pressure reading, height and weight measurements, and a series of questions regarding your medical history will be asked.
